    I am still testing negative for the lurgy.

    Today was questionnaire day for the vaccine study I'm on so I had to report that I had been near a diseased person but so far have not tested positive. I have to call the study team for further questioning.

      My niece & nephew have got it, which is a particular problem at mo. as they live with my sister who needs a lot of care. Bloody diseases!

        Managed to sit in on a couple of meetings, and even contribute some stuff of value to them, so at least some invoicing will be getting done this week

        Very up and down though. Just talking for a minute or so is tiring. But anything that shuts me up is probably considered a good thing by everybody else

        Lunch has been a bacon cob, and very nice it was too

        I've explored the vinegar thing further. The various different kinds of vinegar I have about the place cause the same effect as of sniffing a dangerous chemical. Ketchup seemed OK, even though it contains a lot. And mint sauce was fairly bad, but might be tolerable in small quantities

        Oh, and I had enough energy to have a shower, for the first time this week!

          Received a call from the vaccine study. Just a couple of questions about how close I was to the diseased person and whether I had any symptoms and enough LFTs.

          I have to test again Friday or Saturday and give them a call if I'm positive. I'm sure they'll be calling me in for lots of tests if I do.

            Having seen loads of people cautioning that LFTs can give you a negative result after you become symptomatic, even though you're still infectious, I'm starting to get quite annoyed that mine are relentlessly positive five days in. I'll run out of tests before getting a negative one at this rate

              I've managed to add some (possibly) useful info to the two tickets that used to be one ticket but which I suggested splitting in a meeting earlier. I hope that's enough, because I'm now feeling utterly worn out and I'm not doing anything more than slumping in my recliner for the rest of the day

                I have no symptoms at present, fortunately.

                My understanding is that LFTs are a reliable indicator if you have a high viral load but at lower levels, you're more likely to get a false negative.

                I just have to keep testing until the weekend as that'll be a week after exposure. If I haven't got it by then, it's safe to assume I've dodged it.

                  Tea has been a Pukka steak & kidney pie with chips, peas and gravy. Very tasty

                  No vinegar of course. I keep sniffing the Sarson's bottle just in case things have fixed themselves, but it keeps smelling like something that led to a $100,000,000 legal settlement between a chemicals manufacturer and a bunch of people who had to work with it in the 1970s

                    Best of luck! Hope you managed to dodge it

                      Relatively enjoyable day with my dad. Going somewhere a bit nice tomorrow. We’ll see how much he complains.
